The Heartbleed security bug existed in many of the world’s computer systems for nearly two-and-a-half years before it was discovered and a fix circulated in the spring of 2014, by which time it had rendered an estimated half a million of the internet’s secure servers vulnerable to theft and other mischief. And while Heartbleed was in some respects an outlier, long-lived critical flaws in widely deployed bedrock internet infrastructure are not rare.

On August 4, in Las Vegas, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will host the world’s first, all-machine hacking tournament. This Cyber Grand Challenge will mark the culmination of an ambitious three-year effort to develop advanced, autonomous systems that can to detect, evaluate, and patch software vulnerabilities before adversaries have a chance to exploit them.

In 2014, DARPA launched the Cyber Grand Challenge (CGC) to develop intelligent systems that might someday take over the painstaking and time-consuming work of searching through billions of lines of software code for vulnerabilities or intrusions. The Pittsburgh-based team ForAllSecure built Mayhem, which took first place in the CGC in August 2016. The Mayhem Cyber Reasoning System is now on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. The exhibit will run through September 17, 2017.
